"Six actors play a multitude of roles. . .special note is due. . .Eddie Ray Jackson, who steals the show with a vibrantly energetic turn as an 11th-grade high school player. His joy and buoyancy would put Tigger to shame, and induced the only spontaneous break for applause of the evening at the performance I attended."
